2018 Contract Campaigns
Rhode Island Hospital
Letter to members from President Frank Sims of the Rhode Island Hospital Local 5098
Dear Union Members,
May has been a busy month with the kick-off of contract negotiations.
The Executive Board Team and I have been reviewing each page of the contract, proposing language and financial changes that will put us back into the competitive market. The hospital is proposing significant changes to our health care, pension and other language items that we will be negotiating.
We have created "Contract Committees" on the units - union members who are ready to get the latest contract updates from the area Vice President to distribute out to you and other coworkers. If you need more information, contact the Union office.
May and June will be very active as we get into the core of negotiations. Your support and involvement is critical to get the best and most reasonable contract we can.
I ask that we band together, educate each other and come out for all events and activities. United - We Win!
Frank Sims, RN, President
